I have a juicer that doubles as a pasta machine. I can make narrow noodles and spaghetti with it. I wish it made lasagne noodles too. :P

OMG you guys have been making some incredible things with this dough!. Chocolate dumplings even! I'm so impressed with all the experimenting going on here.

OOPS I MADE A MISTAKE

Had home made chicken broth, steamed carrot and celery,
and sauté in butter chicken tenders. Voila Peggy's dumplings.
Whipped them up. Did a few seasoning tweaks and put the dough
on my board with some oat fiber and gave it a little knead as
for noodle dough, then patted it out and cut them into long
strips like grandma taught me. Dropped them into the simmering
broth and voila...strip dumplings. We enjoyed this so much.
Jay said he loved it! wow!. Here's my mistake...I forgot to
put in the baking powder We liked them better now.
Forgetfulness the mother of invention?

do you mean you like them better without the baking powder? If so, I'll try them like that--I grew up on the wide, flat noodles in "chicken and dumplings" and I think my mother didn't put baking powder in those, either. I've made the flat noodles several times with this recipe just as written and have really loved them.

Baking Powder Mistake

My Grandma never touched them with baking powder.
In her part of the south, they called them 'slick dumplings'.
We liked them better, they had a bit of a chew to them,
not hard but to the tooth. I used black pepper in them and
a bit of parsley. Gosh I've got to have another chicken. Soon!
How about pork,kraut and dumplings? Oooo that sounds most
excellent! Next time two batches.

made chicken soup again today with the rolled dumplings. I noticed that the dough was very light, while being elastic and rollable when I first made it. The dumplings held together in the soup, but were really soft and a little gooey.

I left about a third of the dough on the counter, rolled flat and ready to be cut and cooked when the first set was done. They must have sat out about an hour before I got around to cooking them. They had had a chance to dry and firm up a bit, and they were much firmer and better textured than the first batch. These dumplings are just wonderful!

I just made the dumplings (originally posted recipe) and used a 'ricer' to get them into my simmering soup. It worked very nicely - short spaghetti type noodles - but they are disintegrating somewhat now. I bet if I had squeezed them onto a plate to dry a bit, or allowed the dough itself to sit for a while before squeezing them into my soup, they would have stayed firm. Next time.

I just have alot better luck when I leave them out awhile before adding to broth. But I've only made the dumplings. I keep thinking I will do the noodles but when it comes times to do them I guess I am lazy and I so love the dumplings..lol

I'm getting way ahead of myself here. There is a half-gallon of fantastic chicken soup in the fridge, along with dumplings to add in for me and rice for DH. I also have a whole pineapple upside down cake (actually two), plus leftover lasagne, roast chicken, veggies, salad, and lots of sandwich makings. I bought 8 kaiser rolls for DH for the 1 or 2 days a week when we eat lunch at home on the weekend. Well, he just dug around in the freezer, thawed out some hotdogs and used 2 pieces of my low carb bread to eat them on. Seems he just wasn't in the mood for anything already made in the fridge!

Isn't that funny??
I just LOVE when my fridge is full of delicious things all on my eating plan! And sure enough, one way or another, DH swoops in!

May I ask which brands of gluc and oat fiber you are using? I have no problems with my dough disintegrating. In fact, I've warmed up leftovers several times, and they stay perfect.

I am using the Now brand of gluc powder in the bottle and oat fiber 500 in the silver bag.

I'm using the Oat Fiber 500 and Konjac brand gluc. I've made them before without them disintegrating -I think I put a full t of baking powder this time before I realized it. That may have been why some of it fell apart this time; they didn't totally disappear. I don't mind it when they dissolve somewhat - thickens the broth. The reason I tried the ricer is because I'm a wee bit lazy and didn't feel like rolling out and cutting noodles.

I use the Konjac Foods brand of gluc powder and the HVG brand of oat fiber. They work amazingly well with those two brands, which is what I had on hand when making these for the first time.

Lol...

Well, maybe it was the baking powder then. I've heard others say theirs disintegrated, and I wondered if maybe it was one particular product/brand. I'm getting ready to place an order and want to be sure I don't order something that doesn't give the same exact results as I've been getting.

The one time I increased BP to 1 tsp. mine fell apart in the broth, too. I think these hold up better with less BP. I'm going to try lowering it next time, maybe even eliminate like Barbo does, and see how I like them that way.

I'm too lazy to make the noodles so far. But I have no problems with the dumplings if I let them rest awhile before adding them to the broth. I use Konjac and oat fiber 500.
Love those dumplings!

I use Konjac gluc and oat fiber 500, also. My dumplings were just beautiful.
the only time I had some disintegrate was when I added too much liquid trying to make a drop-type dumping Ginaaaaaa described earlier. But it was my own error - not the recipe.

I'm also interested in using no baking powder to see any difference.

I can't tell that making noodles would be much trouble - just rolling it out and cutting instead of making the little balls...? And I agree - letting it sit out for awhile was beneficial to my dumplings. They held up like a champ, but they were still soft after cooking.

I had the BEST chicken noodle soup today!

On Sunday, I found this nifty little gadget at the flea market for $2.00



I had some leftover cooked chicken and homemade broth, and wanted to try to make something pasta-like with it. Based on Barbo's post, I cut back the BP just a bit to 1/2 tsp, and then I used only one large egg since that was all I had on hand. I let the dough sit for about 10 minutes after I mixed it up, and then I ran it through the "tagliatelle" disc of the gadget. Then I let the nice noodles it make rest for another 10 mins or so, and dropped them in the simmering broth. After 10 minutes they still held their shape beautifully - they can be twirled!

Here's my yummy lunch. I had intended to add mushrooms and some other LC veggies to it after I made sure the noodles would turn out okay, but it was so delicious I couldn't stop eating just as it was!





I have to go get another chicken. This is too awesome, I could live on it for a while!

LOL JMCM1 - thanks but Buttoni did it!

I loved the dumpling recipe as it was, but after making it frequently something about the texture started getting to me and I was making it much less frequently. Cutting back on the BP really helped, and gave these noodles a really "noodle-y" texture. I will make them again and cut back a smidge more on the BP just for the heck of it, and maybe even try a batch with no BP at all. The gadget churned out strands that were very very thin and narrow, but they plumped up during simmering to about 2.5 times the 'raw' size. I think I will try the spaghetti disc soon too! To make them without the gadget, and get the same size, you'd have to roll out the dough less than 1/8" thick and cut strands no more than 1/4" wide.

I tried this recipe for the first time 2 days ago and I love it! I have been unsuccessful in coming up with a low carb dumpling recipe after numerous failed attempts. I joined this forum a couple of days ago just to say thank you to Peggy for coming up with this recipe. Love it!

WELCOME, Jaybecker! So glad you tried this recipe, like it and took the time to join and tell me so. I'm just so pleased our creative cooks are finding new and exciting ways to render the original dough!

Those noodles look FANTASTIC, Penguin!

Yes - definitely the genius recipe belongs to our buttoni (Peggy) but LOOK at those noodles!!!! They look exactly like the Thanksgiving and Christmas noodles I did not eat!

I will definitely be trying these as noodles - thank you for your details!
